My mare is a really copper-y chestnut, and I tend to use Navy or dark blue colors on her. I think dark green would look nice to. I think light colors would look better on other colored horses though. IMO

Black with leather is my favorite for all horse colors. Dark Green also goes well.

Wait! I'll fix it....

I personally like red or blue.

Ride more, worry less.
